18.0" Chain Pickerel caught by Henry V fishing on Saturday December 21, 2013 at 11:57 near Hillsborough in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a lure by Panther Martin

It's been a down year for me, but I made up for lost time this weekend. I went Pickerel fishing Saturday at my favorite winter spots, and Bass fishing Sunday ahead of the storm. Both days were fantastic.

The pickerel are in pre-spawn mode, and extremely aggressive. I had about a dozen fish strike at lures so hard they completely missed the lure. I hooked this particularly fish on my 3rd cast. She put up a good fight, with plenty of leaps, before she surrendered.

They seem to like to bump the lure a lot or just bite off the tail section and come back for more.
